Mobility scooter club wins VPRO Dream City Award


After Richard Min’s wife died, he got lonely and decided to do something about it. He founded the Scootmobielclub (‘mobility scooter club’), which tours through pretty parts of The Hague.

Apart from getting Richard out of isolation, the club also won VPRO’s Dream City award for grassroots contributions to the liveable city. Part of the award was a 1,500 euro prize.

Other contestants were the Repair Caf├ęs and an initiave that lets children become journalists for their neighbourhoods, Wijktijgerpersbureau.

The audience award was won by another initiative from The Hague, the FAST surfers’ village.
